About the Costume

This beautiful gown has been used at least nineteen times over the years, predominantly on book covers. It was first worn in the 1984 Dutch mini-series Willem van Oranje (William of Orange), where Machteld Ramoudt wore it as Louise de Coligny. It was seen again in 1987 in a commercial for Hamlet Cigars, which you can view here. In 1989 it appeared in the episode of A Bit of a Do entitled The Farewell Party, where Nicola Pagett wore it as Liz Badger. It was not spotted again until 2005 (though it almost certainly was used) in the mini-series The Virgin Queen, where it appeared on an extra.

After this point, the costume appeared on numerous book covers, often heavily photoshopped and many from the same photo shoots, some of which can be attributed to Richard Jenkins photography. In 2007, the costume appeared on the re-print of a 1955 Jean Plaidy novel entitled Lord Robert. Next, it was seen on Mary, Queen of France, on a 2007 reissue of a 1964 novel, also by Plaidy. Next was the 2008 Elizabeth and Leicester by Sarah Gristwood, followed by the 2009 novel The Virgin’s Daughter by Jeane Westin and The King’s Daughter by Christie Dickason. In 2010 came The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy, as well as a re-print of the 1981 The Princeling by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles.

The gown – though never seen this way before or since – must either have a duplicate, or have removable sleeves, because in 2011, it appeared on a re-print of a 1963 Jean Plaidy novel, The Captive Queen of Scots, without its distinctive sleeves, but showcasing the detailed stomacher and skirt.

In 2012 the gown was seen again, back in its usual form on the cover of The Soul Mirror by Carol Berg, as well as on two more Jean Plaidy novels – a re-print of the 1989 novel The Queen’s Secret and the 1965 novel The Three Crowns. In 2013 it appeared on the covers of The Royal Mistress by Anne Easter Smith and The Lost Duchess by Jenny Barden.

Finally, in 2013 it appeared in a real production again – this time on a background extra in the 2013 Summer in February. But by 2014, it was appearing on book covers again – this time on Jane Feather’s All the Queen’s Players, before finally being seen in 2015 on Aurélie Meriel as Louise in the Dutch film Michiel De Ruyter (The Admiral).

Costume Commentary

  1. Same bodice, apparently. It suggest that, or there’s another dress sewn with the same bodice pattern, or the sleeves are detachable.

    Obviously, it is photoshopped. The original color is green.

  2. A few minuts ago I discovered this one again, in the cover of another re-issue of a novel by Jean Plaidy, belonging to the Queens of England saga, called “The Queen’s Secret: The Story of Queen Katherine”…

  3. This dress appears in the cover of a book by Jean Plaidy, a novel belonging to the Stuart Saga, called “The Three Crowns” (1965, but this one is a re-issue, of course)…

    The costume in that novel doesn’t look green anymore, but gray… Although those sleeves are unmistakable…

  4. It also appears in the cover of the newest novel by Anne Easter Smith, “Royal Mistress”, the story of Jane Shore, as mistress of king Edward IV… It’s been heavily photoshopped and the funny thing is that no one wears it…

      • And this picture of “The Queen’s Secret” (a little bit bigger than the other one) allows to see the shoulders, so we can say that it is actually the same in “Mary, Queen of France”

  5. You’re right…they are very much alike. My first thought was perhaps they were two dresses made at the same time, but it could also be just as possible that the sleeves are removable? Or that the dress has been heavily altered and earlier appearances of the dresses on book covers are from a much earlier photo shoot, despite the publishing of the books at a later date.

  6. I’m fairly positive this dress on the cover of a 2007 reprint of “The Captive Queen of Scots” from Jean Plaidy has the same bodice (and skirt, you can see the same design on the skirt in “The Tudor Wife” and this)The sleeves are different, though…which is weird, because I think they’re the best part!
